  1. Unfortunately not, they are quite old now and I've lost the boxes and paperwork that came with them, the website only has the specs from the 2017 model onwards which is the series after these so I'm not sure how much different they are (I'd expect they're close but probably not close enough for an accurate model)
  2. Sounds perfect from the title! Il have a read tonight I have an Alpine CDA9887 head unit so should be able to manage a reasonable crossover on that
  3. No idea, I just put them in because I had them laying around. Will definitely be upgrading to 21"s at some point but I can build 2 more boxes with the same drivers for basically no money, still use my current amp and have nicer bass than any other amateur outdoor system in my area, and easily outplay any but the biggest nightclub in my city if I decide to do another indoor party. I'm away interstate at the moment but I need to drag them out for a beach party next week so il do some measuring with REW and UMIK1 and post results then.
  4. Any updates on this? From what I've read over the last couple of days you seem to be heading in a similar path to me but a few years ahead. I currently have 2x Skram and 4x Martin W3 and throwing ~100 person parties in the Australian bush, but hope to build up a similar system and party size to yours in the next couple of years (it's been pushed back a bit now due to covid obviously) My amps are a miss match of JBL, QSC and EV which works fine for a 3 way system now but il need to add more with extra subs in the near future
  5. This is the space I have to work with, il get measurements when I'm home in a few days, I don't currently have the car with me
  6. Hey guys, After joining this forum yesterday to thank Rikki for the Skram plans I built this time last year I'm very happy to see its pretty active still, so I thought I'd throw my next project into the mix. The goal: a portable sub to go with my small monitors that live in my car and get pulled out while camping, at the beach or on job sites. The restrictions: small size, low power (I know, bass needs to be big, this is an issue haha) The gear: Currently the monitors have 2x CDT 6.5" coaxials per side in a sealed box, these will be upgraded eventually but sound fine for my current needs. They run from the head unit in my Prius, I have speakon connectors in my glovebox to extend them beyond the car. I have 6x Exodus Anarchy (4x 4ohm and 2x 8ohm), also a peerless XXLS 10, would prefer not to buy new drivers. My Prius has the back seats removed and a flat platform built to carry my tools or camping gear or whatever so the only free space is where the centre console should be, or the rear seat footwells (which is where the monitors currently live) I would love to run the sub off the remaining 2 head unit channels but I also have a few small 2 channel amps laying around if I really need more power. Volume doesn't need to be crazy, it's usually not much over conversation volume but a little headroom would be nice, I usually listen to bass music so lows are important, deep dubstep, dnb, sometimes psy trance or Techno etc. Am I crazy? Is it even possible? Who knows 🤷‍♂️
  7. Thanks! I'm aware these won't even be close to the sound that the proper drivers and power will give, I have built them in such a way that the entire back panel is removable so I can cut a new baffle and add more bracing for the proper drivers when funds allow. For now I'm blown away at the efficiency and smooth response already and I'm finding low end in songs I didn't know existed on local club systems I've played on so I can't imagine what they will sound like with the proper drivers and a bucket load more power. I think the most power I've put into them so far is about 150w each so there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. I threw one into the back of my car for an audio meet once and pulled 125.7db at 33hz from the rear channels of my head unit (2x 8ohm drivers per channel) 😂 Need to do some proper testing with my UMIK and REW one day soon.
  8. That looks like an absolute monster. I'd be inclined to stick to Skrams simple so you can actually pick them up and move them, 180kg+ for one box is crazy to me if you are touring
  9. Hey guys, I built 2 of these monsters on Boxing Day last year (seemed appropriate) for a New Years party out in the Australian bush, its almost that time of year again and I plan do do 2 more this season so I thought it would be fitting to come back here and thank you for the excellent plans and a year of happy bassing! I didn't (and still don't) have the money for some nice big PA 18"s nor the amps to run them so I am using 4x cheap 10" car audio drivers per box that i had laying around (Memphis SR10 to be precise) and I am blown away by the smooth low end output compared to any other party speakers ive used and even most big car audio systems ive heard (that was my background before moving into DJing and outdoor sound systems). The 2 subs are currently powered by an EV Q1212 and paired with 4x Martin Audio W3 tops that run from a JBL MPX1200 and a QSC MX3000a, processing is via a Mosconi 6to8 car audio DSP. Everyone that's heard them so far this year is very impressed including a couple of outdoor events and an indoor nightclub event, very keen to bring in the new year with 2 more of them! Heres some pics, thanks again Ricci!
